I had a pair of Level gloves from 1998 where I did that (I got them replaced via warranty as you should have). Of course back then I was just starting to snowboard and dragging my hand everywhere (do you drag you hands in the snow a lot?)
I actually switched to mitts (fewer seams to tear/leak/lose heat), but my friend has a pair of Level halfpipe gloves for 4-5 season at 15-20 days a season and aside from the velcro wearing out a little, the kelvar fingertips are in great condition.
